Went Away

Album: Given To The Wild (2012)
  • Look at you with slimmer lines
    Dirty toes un-showered
    Unholy sight the state of you
    And every sign that you're wired again

    Just look at you in the trolley line
    Wild eyed you're still flying
    A little less and a little more
    In the middle ground is still miles away

    So hold me close don't let me go
    I need you so
    Tell me something I don't know
    That I need to know
    Hold those arms around my neck
    I need you so
    Somewhere sunk behind those eyes
    A man I've always known

    And if you go to sea again
    We'll see it out to horizons
    To see it all it's a little late
    And better never but it's happening

    So hold me close don't let me go
    I need you so
    Somewhere sunk behind those eyes
    A man I've always known

    That never went away
    Hold me close don't let me go
    I need you Writer/s: FELIX WHITE, HUGO WHITE, ORLANDO THOMAS WEEKS, RUPERT ALEXANDER JARVIS SHEPHERD, SAM DOYLE
